Motorcycle Learners Permit Courses

Armstrongs motorcycle learner's permit courses focus heavily on developing a powerful foundation for long term riding safety and enjoyment.

For clients with limited or no riding experience, Armstrong's offer an intensive one-day learner's permit course specifically designed to deliver the essential skills and knowledge for the novice rider.

The innovative and powerful training course is conducted over one day for approximately 9 hours with a maximum client/trainer ratio of 6:1 delivered by highly qualified nationally accredited trainers in a motivational and educational environment.

Armstrongs provides motorcycles/scooters, helmets, gloves & wet weather gear (if needed) on all their courses. Armstrongs also offers all clients one free re-test on the day, as they understand that some people make mistakes under test pressure.

What you will need to be eligible to do the course

  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • A current Victorian Driver's Licence; brought with you on the day of the course. If you don't hold a current Victorian Driver's Licence, please contact VicRoads to ensure you complete any necessary theory testing/conversions before the course.
  • Obtain a Victorian Rider Handbook and study before the course, this can be purchased from Armstrongs' office or downloaded via the VicRoads link or website.
  • Wear appropriate protective clothing, including long sleeves/pants and fully enclosed shoes, either boots or runners.

What you will learn throughout the course

  • Vital knowledge of motorcycle/scooter components and their use;
  • Essentials of moving, turning and stopping the motorcycle/scooter;
  • Critical skills for hazard avoidance including emergency braking and counter steering;
  • Cornering techniques and the importance of advanced observation, cornering lines and throttle control;
  • Theory principles relating to safe road riding (road craft and defensive riding techniques);

All training is conducted prior to any testing, maximising the training benefits to aid in the successful completion of the learner's permit course.

Armstrongs' VicRoads accreditation means you don't need to go anywhere else. Successfully complete the licence testing and receive your Motorcycle Learner's Permit on the day to Free Your Inner Rider!

What's Included In Your Course Fee

There are no hidden training costs at Armstrongs.  Here’s what your course fee gets you:

  • Two Attempts to Pass Your Riding Assessment During Your Course
    Assessments can be stressful and nerves can sometimes cause students to make simple riding errors.  That’s why all Armstrongs motorcycle courses include an additional re-test.  That means you’ll have two attempts during your course to pass your riding assessment at no additional cost!
  • An Additional One Hour Rider Training and Another Re-Test
    This is the Armstrongs Training Guarantee.  If Armstrongs is unsuccessful in getting you to Learners Permit or License standard, or you are unsuccessful on your two attempts to pass your riding assessment during your course, then we’ll give you an additional one hour of training and another re-test at no additional cost!
